2016 Gaming SummaryJanuary 1, 2017 at 7:49 pm | Posted in Special | 7 Comments
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Just my yearly gaming summary where I list all the games I played within the year and include some of the most memorable stuff from that game. This year, I planned to finish at least 12 vita otoge but I was able play only 11 ^_^; Apart from those though, I did get to finish one PC visual novel, one vita rhythm game, and one mobile otome game ･´∀`･)
Kokuchou no Psychedelica
“Nakige of the year”
Hikage’s end still haunts me up to today.
Uta no Prince-sama MUSIC 3
“This is the last game I’ll play from this series”
So much wasted potential of a PS Vita rhythm game. Regardless, I liked the songs and I earned another platinum trophy.
Senjou no Waltz
Anticlimactic ends, ??? transition between scenes, and lots of misogynistic commenrs (thank God there’s Shaolei)… I really wish I hadn’t picked up a 2014 game just for Ishikawa Kaito. The only saving grace is the beautiful opening song and Tifalet.
“I just played this for Teita’s art”
I honestly can’t remember much of this game except for the fact that Teita’s art is beautiful as usual and the background effects are awesome. I heard that the game will be released in English as “Nightshade”.
Dance with Devils
“The mortal enemy of platinum trophy collectors”
Rejet, I won’t ever forget how you forced us to open and close the Dance with Devils game just to get one of the trophies.
Nil Admirari no Tenbin
“I can’t believe I like this trash of a game”
The writing is really shitty but I’m very hyped for the FD. More sexy scenes please!
“Best Game of 2016”
Need I say more?
The House in Fata Morgana
“The game everyone should play”
It’s very cheap on steam and yet it’ll give you more than twenty hours of play time. A friend says Fata Morgana is like that book that you can’t put down once you start reading, and I agree. I used up two rolls of tissues while playing this game.
“Funny, but that’s it.”
The comedy was gold but I was so disappointed with the lack of proper romance development and interesting story.
Arguably the most famous and mainstream otome game of the year. Cheritz is the angel of angels. Honey Butter Chips are sold out everywhere. I didn’t get enough sleep. Selfies. Cats. Memes. LOLOL.
Haitaka no Psychedelica
“Lugus is best boy”
I’m glad he won as most popular character because I still can’t get over Hikage’s loss in the Kokuchou character poll.
“Most organized game of 2016”
From the case files to the monthly incidents, to the little by little revelation of things, this game is definitely the most organized I’ve seen this year. Story is really good and there’s enough romance. Shiraishi deserves more love. Please make an FD with a Saeki route.
Kenka Bancho Otome
“Funniest game of 2016”
Comparable to Trigger Kiss in terms of comedy, but KBO is superior because it has an interesting, solid, and organized story. I laughed my ass off at the pool scene.
Zettai Kaikyuu Gakuen
“I expected too much”
It was my fault for expecting something like Shinigami to Shoujo level of writing so I was a bit disappointed, but nonetheless the game is good. Haru is my son. Namikawa Daisuke’s acting in this game is superb.
My Top 3 Games of the Year
1. Taisho Alice
2. Kokuchou no Psychedelica
Best boy of the Year
Hikage! Voiced by Ishikawa Kaito + tsundere = I’m sold!
2017 Gaming Plans
As of writing, I don’t have anything preordered that will be released in 2017. So far, I’m also not interested in any of the announced new games, except for FDs of games I loved, such as Nil Admirari, Taisho Alice, and Kenka Bancho Otome (I might wait for a TaiAli FD vita port first though). None of the announced new games during OtoPa 2016 caught my eye, but we’ll see once they release more info about them.
In the meantime, I’m waiting for four games to arrive: Norn9 Act Tune, Code:Realize FD, and Ken ga Kimi twin pack, so I’ll have plenty of games to keep me busy (not that I have so much free time though ;;;).
Again, Happy New Year and cheers for more good otome games in 2017! ♪(*^^)o∀*∀o(^^*)♪
